Can I transfer my frequent flyer points or miles to another program?

frequent-flyerFrom Qantas and Emirates to Virgin Australia and Singapore Airlines, discover how you can earn and redeem rewards with more than one airline.

Frequent flyer programs are becoming increasingly popular as airlines try to attract frequent customers and reward them for their loyalty. While this offers a wide range of benefits to customers, some frequent flyers find themselves wondering if it’s possible to transfer their reward points to another airline’s frequent flyer program to take advantage of a particular flight or reward.

Unfortunately, it’s not possible to transfer your points from one frequent flyer program to another because different programs have different terms and conditions surrounding how you earn points and what they can be spent on. However, it is possible to redeem your frequent flyer points for flights and rewards with another airline if it happens to be a ‘partner airline’ of your chosen flight provider.

Many of the world’s most popular airlines form partnerships with other airlines to offer flight networks that span the globe. They also allow customers to enjoy frequent flyer member benefits across a host of partner airlines, including redeeming their frequent flyer points for tickets on codeshare flights, which is where two or more airlines share the same flight.

Under some programs it’s also possible to earn tier miles when flying with partner airlines, allowing you to reach higher levels of membership in your frequent flyer program.

How to redeem and earn frequent flyer points with other airlines

    Hi, I’d like to book a return flight from Australia to Germany, and Emirates have the itinerary and flight that suits me best. I have some Qantas Frequent Flyer points amassed, and was wondering if it’s possible to use them to save some money on the booking?

    Thanks, Cameron.

      Hi Cameron,

      Thanks for reaching out.
      Unfortunately, it’s not possible to transfer your points from one frequent flyer program to another because different programs have different terms and conditions surrounding how you earn points and what they can be spent on. However, it is possible to redeem your frequent flyer points for flights and rewards with another airline if it happens to be a ‘partner airline’ of your chosen flight provider.
      Read more on that on here.

      Cheers,
      Joanne

    Hallo. I would like to transfer Air India points to Singapore Airlines. They are both in the Star Alliance flyer programme. Can I do this? Thank you.
    Katy.

    • Staff
      JonathanSeptember 7, 2017Staff

      Hello Katy,

      Thank you for your question.

      Unfortunately, since they are each managed separately, you cannot transfer miles or points between accounts or combine them. However, you may earn points on the same frequent flyer program (FFP), provided you give your member number to your travel agent prior booking in any Star Alliance member airline.

      Hope this clarifies.

      Cheers,
      Jonathan

    Hi there. I have a number of Delta Skymiles which I earned making a couple of trips to the US a while ago. I live in Australia and typically fly Qantas and Virgin Australia when I travel. I have a Qantas Frequent Flyer account and a Virgin Australia Velocity account. I realise that I can’t transfer my Delta Skymiles to my Qantas or Virgin frequent flyer accounts, but am I able to redeem my Delta Skymiles with either of these programs? And if so, how does it work, i.e. how does one go about doing it?

    • Staff
      JonathanJuly 27, 2017Staff

      Hello Paul,

      Thank you for your inquiry today. Unfortunately, it is both no for Qantas and Velocity.

      With Qantas, Delta is not one of their partnered airlines, while for Velocity, you can redeem Velocity points through Delta flights but not the other way around.

      You can contact the concerned airlines directly for confirmation.

      Hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      Jonathan

    How do I use BA Avios to book a QF Rewards flight? Thank you.

    • Staff
      DanielleJune 18, 2017Staff

      Thank you for contacting finder.com.au. We are a comparison website and general information service, we’re more than happy to offer general advice.

      When you have enough Avios you can start spending them on flights with British Airways and other partner airlines throughout the Oneworld alliance, like Qantas. You can do all of these through British Airways’ website. You may also check other benefits through the Oneworld website.

      I hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      Danielle

    Can my husband book me a flight using his Qantas frequent flyer points? And can he use them on a Virgin Australia flight?

    • Staff
      JasonMay 21, 2017Staff

      Hi Theresa,

      Thank you for your enquiry.

      Your husband cannot book a flight with Virgin Australia using his earned Qantas Points but he can redeem a flight for you or eligible family members with Qantas and most of their partner airlines.

      Please check out this link for a guide to using Qantas Frequent Flyer Points.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Jason

      AnndyMarch 8, 2017Staff

      Hi Kim,

      Thanks for your question.

      Generally, you can’t transfer your points or miles from one frequent flyer program to another, unless the providers have a special arrangement. In this case, you can’t transfer Krisflyer miles to Asiana Club. However, Krisflyer miles can be redeemed for flights with Asiana and other partner airlines.

      You can check this page for more information on Krisflyer miles redemption options.

      Cheers,
